Morning Song - Tuesday after Proper 6

Pentecost - Tuesday Invitation

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


The Lord is in his ho-ly tem-ple;
let all the earth keep si-lence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the med-i-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cep-ta-ble in your sight, Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and loft-One
who in-hab-its e-ter-ni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in the high and ho-ly place

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your ho-ly hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Tuesday - Venite

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let us come be-fore his pres-ence with thanks-giv-ing
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is great God,
and a great King a-bove all gods.
In his hand are the cav-erns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his al-so.

The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have mold-ed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the peo-ple of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would heark-en to his voice!



Psalm 78:1-39

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     


Pay at-ten-tion, my peo-ple, to my in-struc-tion!
Lis-ten to the words speak!
I will sing a song that im-parts wis-dom;
I will make in-sight-ful ob-ser-va-tions a-bout the past.

What we have heard and learned
that which our an-ces-tors have told us
we will not hide from their de-scend-ants.
We will tell the next gen-er-a-tion a-bout the Lord's praise-wor-thy acts,

A-bout his great strength
and the a-maz-ing things he has done.
He es-tab-lished a rule in Ja-cob;
he set up a law in Is-ra-el.

He com-mand-ed our an-ces#-tors
to make his deeds known to their de-scend-ants,
so that the next gen-er-a-tion,
chil-dren yet to be born, might know a-bout them.

They will grow up and tell their de-scend-ants a-bout them.
Then they will place their con-fi-dence in God.
They will not for-get the works of God,
and they will o-bey his com-mand.

Then they will not be like their an-ces-tors,
who were a stub-born and re-bel-lious gen-er-a-tion,
a gen-er-a-tion that was not com-mit-ted and faith-ful to God.
they will o-bey his com-mand.

The E-phraim-ites were armed with bow,
but they re-treat-ed in the day of bat-tle.
They did not keep their cov-e-nant with God,
and they re-fused to o-bey his law.

They for-got what he had done,
the a-maz-ing things he had shown them.
He did a-maz-ing things in the sight of their an-ces-tors,
in the land of E-gypt, in the re-gion of Zo-an.

He di-vid-ed the sea and led them a-cross it;
he made the wat-er stand in heap.
He led them with a cloud by day,
and with the light of fire all night long.

He broke o-pen rocks in the wil-der-ness,
and gave them e-nough wat-er to fill the depths of the sea.
He caused streams to flow from the rock,
and made the wat-er flow like riv-ers.

Yet they con-tin-ued to sin a-gainst him,
and re-belled a-gainst the Most High in the de-sert.
They will-ful-ly chal-lenged God
by ask-ing for food to sat-is-fy their ap-pe-tite.

They in-sult-ed God, say-ing,
Is God real-ly a-ble to give us food in the wil-der-ness?
Yes, he struck rock
and wat-er flowed out, streams gushed forth.

But can he al-so give us food?
Will he pro-vide meat for his peo-ple?
When the Lord heard this, he was fu-ri-ous.
A fire broke out a-gainst Ja-cob.

His an-ger flared up a-gainst Is-ra-el,
be-cause they did not have faith in God,
and did not trust his a-bil-i-ty to de-liv-er them.
But he gave a com-mand to the clouds a-bove,

and o-pened the doors in the sky.
He rained down man-na for them to eat;
he gave them the grain of heav-en.
Man ate the food of the might-one.

He sent them more than e-nough to eat.
He brought the east wind through the sky,
and by his strength led forth the south wind.
He rained down meat on them like dust,

birds as nu-mer-ous as the sand on the sea-shore.
He caused them to fall right in the mid-dle of their camp,
all a-round their home.
They ate un-til they were be-yond full;

he gave them what they de-sired.
They were not yet filled up,
their food was still in their mouths,
when the an-ger of God flared up a-gainst them.

He killed some of the strong-est of them;
he brought the young men of Is-ra-el to their knees.
De-spite all this, they con-tin-ued to sin,
and did not trust him to do a-maz-ing things.

So he caused them to die
un-sat-is-fied and filled with ter-ror.
When he struck them down, they sought his fa-vor;
they turned back and longed for God.

They re-mem-bered that God was their pro-tec-tor,
and that God Most High was their de-liv-er-er.
But they lied to him,
and de-ceived him with their words,

They were not real-ly com-mit-ted to him,
and they were un-faith-ful to his cov-e-nant.
Yet he is com-pas-sion-ate.
He for-gives sin and does not de-stroy.

He of-ten holds back his an-ger,
and does not stir up his fu-ry.
He re-mem-bered that they were made of flesh,
and were like a wind that blows past and does not re-turn.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.




A reading from Numbers 11:1-23

When the people complained, it displeased the Lord. When the Lord heard it, his anger burned, and so the fire of the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outer parts of the camp. When the people cried to Moses, he prayed to the Lord, and the fire died out. So he called the name of that place Taberah because there the fire of the Lord burned among them.

Now the mixed multitude who were among them craved more desirable foods, and so the Israelites wept again and said, “If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we used to eat freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now we are dried up, and there is nothing at all before us except this manna!” (Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color like the color of bdellium. And the people went about and gathered it, and ground it with mills or pounded it in mortars; they baked it in pans and made cakes of it. It tasted like fresh olive oil. And when the dew came down on the camp in the night, the manna fell with it. )

Moses heard the people weeping throughout their families, everyone at the door of his tent; and when the anger of the Lord was kindled greatly, Moses was also displeased. And Moses said to the Lord, “Why have you afflicted your servant? Why have I not found favor in your sight, that you lay the burden of this entire people on me?Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that you should say to me, ‘Carry them in your arms, as a foster father bears a nursing child,’ to the land which you swore to their fathers? From where shall I get meat to give to this entire people, for they cry to me, ‘Give us meat, that we may eat!’ I am not able to bear this entire people alone, because it is too heavy for me! But if you are going to deal with me like this, then kill me immediately. If I have found favor in your sight then do not let me see my trouble. ”

The Lord said to Moses, “Gather to me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know are elders of the people and officials over them, and bring them to the tent of meeting; let them take their position there with you. Then I will come down and speak with you there, and I will take part of the Spirit that is on you, and will put it on them, and they will bear some of the burden of the people with you, so that you do not bear it all by yourself.

“And say to the people, ‘Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, and you will eat meat, for you have wept in the hearing of the Lord, saying, “Who will give us meat to eat, for life was good for us in Egypt?” Therefore the Lord will give you meat, and you will eat. You will eat, not just one day, nor two days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out your nostrils and makes you sick, because you have despised the Lord who is among you and have wept before him, saying, “Why did we ever come out of Egypt?”’”

Moses said, “The people around me are 600,000 on foot; but you say, ‘I will give them meat, that they may eat for a whole month. ’ Would they have enough if the flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? If all the fish of the sea were caught for them, would they have enough?” And the Lord said to Moses, “Is the Lord’s hand shortened? Now you will see whether my word to you will come true or not!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!




Tuesday - Song of Praise

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Glo-ry to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are wor-thy of praise; glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you for the ra-di-ance of your ho-ly Name;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you in the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, seat-ed be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.



A reading from Romans 1:16-25

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For the righteousness of God is revealed in the gospel from faith to faith, just as it is written, “The righteous by faith will live. ”

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!




Tuesday - Song to the Lamb

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, Lord our God,
For you cre-at-ed eve-ry-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-at-ed and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fam-i-ly, lan-guage, peo-ple, and na-tion,
a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for ev-er and for ev-er-more.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Tuesday Creed

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.



Tuesday - Suffrages A

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

Let your way be known up-on earth;
Your sav-ing health a-mong all na-tions.
Let not the need-y, O Lord, be for-got-ten;
Nor the hope of the poor be tak-en a-way.

Cre-ate in us clean hearts, God;
And sus-tain us with your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.





Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. 
Amen.

A Collect for Peace
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

A Prayer for Mission
Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name. 
Amen.
